Marcel D. Safar / Advisory Chairman

Marcel is a founding partner of Chevron Partners, Lazare Builders’ affiliate. Chevron Partners formed Lazare Builders as part of their belief that quality construction and materials is an essential component of real estate investment. While Marcel later became an attorney, Marcel grew up in the building trades with his father who is the quintessential tradesman that can “build absolutely anything”.

Marcel directed the full scale re-positioning of family real estate assets until forming Chevron Partners with longtime friends and colleagues from France. Previously, Marcel was a practicing attorney at the law firms of Sidley Austin LLP and Otterbourg, Steindler, Houston & Rosen P.C. in New York City, where he focused his practice on real estate finance. Marcel is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and New York and is a licensed construction supervisor in Massachusetts.
